Chris Ramsey appointed QPR head coachby Jack Kitson / 19 May 2015, 12:20Tweet
QPR have promoted Chris Ramsey to head coach on a three-year deal, running through to 2018. Ramsey had previously been at the helm on an interim basis through to the end of the 2014/15 season, however the club have decided to place their faith in the 53-year-old by handing him new long-term contract at Loftus Road.
- Ramsey has won three, drawn two and lost nine of his 14 league games in charge.
- Ramsey has the best Premier League win percentage (21%) of any QPR manager since 2010.
Back in February Ramsey was placed in caretaker charge of the R's following the abrupt departure of Harry Redknapp, before signing a short-term deal (until the end of the season) shortly after. Despite failing to save the west London outfit from the dreaded drop down to the Championship, winning just three of his 14 games at the helm so far, Ramsey has been handed the reins on a permanent basis.
Ramsey will be determined to return to the trust shown in him by leading QPR straight back up to the Premier League next season, something that will be harder said than done. Sky Bet have handed the Hoops odds of 16/1 to bounce back by winning the second-tier in 2015/15, while they can be backed at 5/1 with the same bookmaker to win promotion.
